Description of problem:
In Red Hat 9, when right-clicking on a panel and selecting new panel, there is
an option to create a new main menu panel (or something to that affect, I do not
recall the exact verbage).  What this did was add a nice panel with neato Mac OS
X style rounded edges accross the top of the desktop, and also included the
gnome/redhat menu and a couple other items.  I'm not sure if the omission of
this option is a bug or by design, but it looked really sharp in Red Hat 9 and
I've found no other way in Fedora Core to create a panel with rounded edges like

I know this is definately not a priority type of thing and appolgize in advance
for wasting anybody's time, but its something that I miss and figured this would
be a good way to mention it

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start Gnome
2. Right click on a panel and select new
3. Notice the lack of all the options that were previously avaiable in RH9

Expected Results:  Was hoping to see an option to add a main menu panel

Yeah, they were purposely removed. There has been some talk about
adding them back, even a patch, but it doesn't look like there's a
nice way of doing it. See:
